  7. phpBB to wpForo
  8. MyBB to wpForo
  9. SMF to wpForo

Just a quick note, for Asgaros forum it doesn't migrate the topics only the forums/categories etc.

Great Tool!  We successfully used it to migrate from buddy press on a site.  Very happy!

If I want to migrate from Simplepress to WPFORO via the Go2wpForo tool , do I need to have activated both forum plugins, so Simplepress and WPFORO ?

Or do I need to deactivate the Simplepress plugin in my Wordpress dashboard , so there is no conflict ?

 

Many thanks. Regards, Stefan.

How do I get my attachments migrated from SimplePress to WPForo ?
I originally had my forum running on Simplemachines SMF2.0.15 and then used
the SimplePress importer to import the SMF importer to get it to Wordpress SimplePress...

That worked, but I did not get the attachments into SimplePress... Or do I need first to buy these Attachment Viewer Plugins to see the attachments ?

 

What is the best Method to go from SMF to SimplePress and then to WPForo with also getting

all attachments moved to WPForo ?

Many thanks in advance. Regards, Stefan.

Is there an easier way to migrate from SMF to WPForo maybe first going SMF to BBPress

including attachments ?

attachments ?
Many thanks. Regards, Stefan.

Can I import from a Lsoft system into WP Foro?  Even if it is a searchable archive that would be ok.

I'm sorry but the Go2wpForo tool doesn't support Lsoft system forums. You should contact to professional migration services like gConverter or Profprojects for  this kind of projects.

I am am in the step of migration from live forum to local site. I copied my credentials from config.php and it keeps saying “Not connected to the database”.
Is it because my host provider is blocking the connection? or I am doing something wrong.

Please open a new topic. And provide more information about what exactly you migrate.
